Pogba slammed by former Man United defender for social media antics

Date Posted,May 30, 2017

Former Manchester United ace Paul Parker has hit out at Paul Pogba for his social media antics.

France international Pogba joined United in a world record £90m last summer but largely disappointed in his debut season, as reported by the Manchester Evening News .

Pogba was directly involved in 15 goals for United including the Europa League final opener last week, and has hit the woodwork nine times.

But, given his love of posting fun-loving videos on Instagram, Parker feels the world’s most expensive footballer needs to improve to justify his presence on social media.

“Pogba sums up United’s problems,” he wrote for Eurosport .

“He is not a holding midfielder. So much has been taken away from his game. I think he’s tried too hard to impress this season after that world record £89m price tag.

“He’s been having too many touches of the ball which isn’t really in his nature. He’s also been giving away silly fouls because people are working harder against him.

“He hasn’t had the greatest of seasons. Expectations are high. United have got to kick on, Mourinho has to kick on and he’s got to kick on. He can do what he wants with his Twitter emoji, dancing and his hair when he is part of a United side that are the real deal.”
